That's great. I hope he uses more than just 500T? I know it has a place where others don't, but has it really become a one size fits all stock for 35mm?

What would also be cool is if they did all the effects work using film based methods. Travelling mattes etc. Somehow I doubt it though - all that stuff is really really hard to get right. But of course what was really cool out about the first ones, was not just the effects work, but the beautiful photography.
Luke Skywalker, looking to the horizon (as a twin suns set). I don't believe digital could come anywhere close to catching that special light.

Yes, indeed. But were Gil to have used a video camera, we'd say he was responsible for that as well. What we couldn't say is that the result would have been the same.

Just please go easy on the lens flares. That's all I ask.

Wasn't Return of the Jedi shot in 70mm or was that just a blow up release print from 35mm?

It was shot in 4-perf 35mm anamorphic plus 8-perf 35mm VistaVision for visual effects, just like the two before it. They all had 70mm blow-ups done for some theaters.
